Spiritual awakening refers to a shift in consciousness, an apperception of reality which had been previously unrealized. The culmination of such realizations is in the recognition of oneness with all of existence.

Over the course of human history there has existed a timeless wisdom - a deep and profound realization of the ground state of being; the unconditioned source of all existence.

Over time, many great teachers have come to embody this wisdom, some of note include Jesus (the Christ), Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha), Lao-Tzu, and Krishna - though there have been many more.

The core message has been the same, that absolute truth is beyond all the concepts and beliefs of man, that underlying apparent differences is fundamental oneness, and that your true nature is whole, unbounded and everlasting.

All form arises from pure potentiality; the sages referred to this as emptiness, the Tao, Brahman, Allah, God - while science may refer to it as the implicate order or the zero point field.

By any name, the words point to an intangible energetic essence that transitions from possibility and timelessness to actualization, where experience occurs through the rich diversity of form.

To say that you've had a spiritual awakening is a bit of an oxymoron, the 'you' is exactly what vanishes.

To be on a path to spiritual awakening is more accurate.
